Can I choose the colours and style of my makeup?
Of course! You’re welcome to bring along any ideas or photographs. I can advise on what will be best for you as an individual, whilst keeping the initial inspiration in mind.
If I have an allergy or sensitive skin, should I let you know about this?
At the start of your appointment I will ask you about your skin type, allergies and sensitivity. I will then use suitable products for your skin. However, if you have a number of allergies, or a relevant skin condition, it may not be safe to continue with the appointment and any monies will be returned to you.
Which brands do you use?
I use a variety of high quality products. Some examples are;
The Ordinary, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Illamasqua, Makeup Geek, RCMA, Ben Nye, Graftobian, Kryolan, Sonia Roselli, Smashbox, Sigma, Zoeva, and Charlotte Tilbury. I only use brands which are cruelty-free and do not test on animals.
Can I bring some of my own makeup?
Unfortunately I'm unable to use products other my own. I can't know how they'll work with my other products, and I am unable to guarantee the longevity or the finish. I have a wide selection of colours and tones, for all skin types, so I'm sure I'll have something suitable for you.
When should I have my bridal trial?
It's important to have the trial so that you can decide if I'm the Makeup Artist for you. All trials are 'no obligation'. I recommend your trial approx 6 months in advance,
Where should trials take place?
Ideally at my beauty salon, however I can travel to wherever is convenient.
How far in advance do you take bookings?

How should I prepare for a bridal trial?
Please arrive on time for your appointment, with a clean face free from makeup. Please feel free to bring along any images of makeup styles you like.
